Seeing Apple Through Color Blind Eyes

Jason Snell:

There are a few video games that I’m unable to play because they require quick sorting of colors that I have difficulty differentiating. Some of them have special modes for people like me; others just never think about it. The developers of Destiny did a lot of work to update the game’s controls and heads-up display in order to make it more usable by people who can’t perceive colors the way most people do.


I can’t really tell the difference between the green and the amber lights at a glance. For a long time, I didn’t even realize the light on the MagSafe connector changed color. (Apple is far from alone here — lots of electronics use subtle color shifts of an LED to indicate things in a way that I simply can’t digest.)
